Victoria Falls Destination Update April

 Japan lifts travel ban - Victoria Falls Destination Update April

 The Japanese government has excluded the Victoria Falls area from its travel warning to Zimbabwe.  Koichi Morita, the Japanese ambassador to Zimbabwe  made the recommendation after touring the country to ascertain its safety.

  "I have visited some parts of the country, including Victoria Falls, and I have found them very safe and secure," Mr Morita told Zimbabwe's daily Herald.  "I recommended to my government that they remove travel warnings to  our citizens and so far the government has eased the travel warnings to  Victoria Falls," he said.

  Vic Falls holds on to cholera-clear status

 Victoria Falls continues to be a cholera-free zone.  No cases have been  reported in the district, and vigilance remains high to maintain this status.

 Air Zim safety record soars

 Air Zimbabwe's recent passing of IATA's operational safety audit and subsequent registration is confirmation that Air Zimbabwe adheres to stringent and rigorous maintenance and operational requirements, says the airline's head, Peter Chikumba.

The audit is an internationally recognized evaluation system to assess the operational management and control systems of an airline's safety programme.

Air Zimbabwe becomes one of 18 sub-Saharan African airlines to be IOSA-registered.  

"The safety of our customers remains our top priority," said Dr Chikumba. 

A gotovictoriafalls champion, Air Zimbabwe has daily services between Victoria Falls and Harare.   

"Congratulations to Air Zimbabwe on this fine achievement.  Obviously this is welcome reassurance for the travel trade and the flying public," said Gotovictoriafalls spokesman Ross Kennedy.
